Save money, time and calories.

Doing your supermarket shop online can be a great time saver as well as a much more pleasant experience than trapsing up and down the aisles.

Now there's a way to make sure you're getting the best value for money when shopping online - I've just recently discovered which is a comparison site for online food shopping. You put in your shopping list and then it compares prices across Tesco, Asda, Sainsburys and Ocado showing you the price of your shop at all four supermarkets. You then choose which one to shop with and it sends your order details to their website ... pretty nifty.

Interestingly my shop, mainly organic wholefoods, came out cheapest at Tescos. Although I like to shop around for particular products. For example my favourite gluten free pasta is Asda's ownbrand whilst only Sainsburys and Tesco stock the excellent Meridian dairy free pesto. has another clever trick up it's sleeve - when you've added your shopping list it shows you possible substitue
products that are lower in calories. I'm not generally a fan of calorie counting as a way of choosing your food, but when it's a direct comparison for something you're already going to buy then it's definitely worth checking before you checkout!
